4 Strategies to Help You Be Happy

September 27th, 2018

A new survey finds that the U.S. is just the 18th happiest country in the world, because of poor health, poor economic mobility, and a lack of social cohesion.  In each of more than 150 countries surveyed, Gallup asked 3,000 respondents to assess their life on a scale of 1 to 10. The top rung (10) means they are living the best possible life; the bottom means the worst. Americans give an average rung-number of 6.8, while the top four countries all score more than 7.5. There are many reasons why we might not be happy. Social media, while giving the illusion of connectedness actually makes us more... Read More

Motivation Monday

Open Yourself Up

  “You’re off to great places, Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, So get on your way!” -Dr. Suess Let’s talk about woo-woo today. I’m going to be more abstract than usual, but I want to dance in this critical topic. In circles of the community, I’ve been flabbergasted that the community rejected the idea of woo-woo. Definition? Woo-woo is what cannot be measured, an idea of spiritual forces that cheer us on to succeed. A magic in the air that aligns our outer life with our inner feelings, desires, and motivations. I’ve heard much judgment and denial about how there can’t... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

February 10th, 2017

     “I suffered from severe depression since I was 10 years old. The medication I was prescribed never offered me real relief… it mostly made me feel numb. I didn’t agree with the diagnosis, but years of trying to get off medication didn’t work. I finally found my answer [about 7 years ago]. When I first found psychic schools, I thought they were like a cult… and for a while I kept my distance. Growing up in conservative Tennessee gave me a false perception of psychics as well as the abilities I suppressed my whole life. When I finally started taking classes,... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day

May 7th, 2016

Meet Nyah Layne.   ‘The didgeridoo is an extension of my soul, so I suffered when I lost it.” Nyah has a spiritual connection with the beautiful sounding wind instrument, the didgeridoo. Nyah first saw one when she was in elementary school, and was immediately drawn to the sound it made. She didn’t see one again until she was visiting San Francisco and saw one that was beautifully made with mushrooms carved on to look like they were wildly flowing from the base. When Nyah was at Mt. Shasta another time for Shasta Solstice, there was a gathering of people and she came across a man with... Read More

Boulder’s Unique Brand of Buddhism

July 8th, 2015

I often hear Boulder being hailed, and sometimes scorned, as a place of liberal thinking. But many fail to acknowledge the influence of Eastern ideology on the culture of Boulder. The Buddhist culture in Boulder is quiet, perhaps due to its dynamic history. It began with the exile of the Dalai Lama after the failed uprising of Tibet against the People’s Republic of China in 1950. Following the failed revolt, China issued the 14th Dalai Lama, and therefore Tibet, an agreement called the Seventeen Point Agreement for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet. This document cemented Tibet as a permanent... Read More

Joyful Journaling – Create your own story

October 24th, 2014

Yesterday the partial solar eclipse brought together hundreds of Boulder folk as they gathered to observe the event.  Looking at the images and stories of happy observeres soaking up the late fall sunshine, it’s clear to see what a fascination we have with the skies.  And it’s no accident – us  humans have been observing the skies for a very, very long time, it’s in our nature. Did you know though, that eclipses have long been understood to be a time of deeper connection to our spiritual nature?  The days around solar eclipses and new moons are a perfect time to work... Read More

A Broader Perspective – an Interview with Astrologer Sophie Rose

September 26th, 2014

I am excited to begin this series of interviews with some of the wonderful spiritual teachers, healers and therapists we are blessed to have access to here in Boulder. Sophie and I have worked together over the past several years, and I have always appreciated her ability to empower others (myself included!) in their lives and on their spiritual path with clarity and kindness. So, we met for tea and a chat! Originally from France, Sophie has been in Boulder for 13 years offering astrology readings and classes, and in recent years has also been guiding clients in past life regression work. She has... Read More
